Am I still required to check in if I’ve been assigned a seat?

Yes, you are still required to check in and print your boarding pass for your flight. Please be reminded that you must check in at least one hour prior to departure, or your reserved seats will be released.

You can check in:

  • Online or via your mobile device up to 90 minutes prior to departure*; or,
  • At the Self Check-In Kiosks (if available) or at the airport counters at least 60 minutes prior to departure.

You can print your self-print boarding pass or/and send mobile boarding pass to your mobile device if you are departing from airports where such service is available.
